Fair, although I was pretty sure I was straight until I realized I was bi like...a year ago. I don't remember her specifically saying she was straight, but I'll take your word for it.

Also a fair point. A lot of people don't figure this stuff out until way older than these kids are, but considering their relationship, one would think there would at least be some inkling by now and Sal's reaction when Marcie explained her motivations toward Malaya suggest the idea of being with a woman is not even a blip on her radar.  I don't think she has used the exact phrasing, but she has strongly implied it.

I think that Sal knew that Marcie was homosexual; she expressed no surprise when Marcie told her that she was sexually attracted to Malaya. What was a totally-out-of-left-field revelation for Sal was that Marcie had ever been attracted to her.
I mean that the idea of being with a woman is not a blip on the radar for her (Sal) not for Marcie.

GOD DAMN IT BLAINE.

Who is a grandfather going to believe... their grandson or one of their goons?

OR rather, whose side is he more likely to come down on?

Kick his erse.. then tell Grandpops he was threatening him.

I was thinking this way, until I thought about what Blaine could possibly have on him... and then I realized that Blaine must have been following Amber around for a while, and so he heard this. Talking to the cops is something you don't do when you're in the mob.

It also may depend on how disappointed said grandfather is. If he considers Asher's leaving the "family business" a betrayal of not only himself, but the family honour, it is entirely likely he'd be more willing to believe a loyal stooge over a rebellious and disrespectful grandson.

Well, with today's strip (8/14/19), Willis is possibly on the verge of doing something that I've never seen attempted before: A romantic triangle between a honest-hearted young man and two of the alters of a woman with non-sharing DID.
